Zunes and Mundy have written the definitive book on the Western.... it. Theirs is a contribution that prompts a wide array of adjectives: provocative, insightful, exhaustive, encyclopedic. The collaboration
brings together their respective strengths as scholars, and their work displays a robust interdisciplinarity in its use of methods and insights from geography, cartography, diplomatic history, political science, anthropology, and postcolonial studies. (Africa Studies Review)
The main merit of the book lies in its extremely informative accounts of the conflict's beginnings, the course of the hot war from 1975 to 1991, and the successive failures of UN-backed initiatives: the 1991 Settlement Plan. (International Journal of Middle East Studies)
The authors of Western Sahara: War, Nationalism, and Conflict Irresolution largely succeed in giving the reader a comprehensive tour d’horizon of the dispute, one that begins with the 1975–91 war between Morocco and Polisario and continues with chapters describing the political rivalries in North Africa. (International Journal of African Historical Studies)
A must read for policy makers and students of northwestern Africa as well as for internarional human rights activists. Summing Up: Highly recommended. (Choice)
